If your big day is coming up and you want to make your own watercolor wedding invitations (these work well for baby showers, engagement parties, and bridal showers too) then you're in luck! I often create custom wedding invitation artwork for brides but today I’m going to show you three watercolor-look invitations you can create yourself, with your Tombow Dual Brush Pens.
- Smooth watercolor paper
- A paintbrush
- Jar of water
- Tombow Dual Brush Pens in the colors of your wedding or event
Romantic Wedding Invitation
Start by drawing some flower and leaf shapes with your Dual Brush Pens then soften the edges with water and your paintbrush. Let it dry and repeat if you want a little extra color. Scan or photograph your artwork and add the text on your computer and voila, your invitations are ready for printing! Watch the time-lapse video below to see the steps sped up.
Feminine Wedding Invitation
To create these invitations start by adding some color to the corners of your watercolor paper, using Tombow Dual Brush Pens, then blend and soften the ink using water and a paintbrush. Once the paper is dry, draw some simple flowers using Tombow Mono Drawing Pens. Scan or photograph your artwork and add the event details on your computer.
This last wedding invitation is a little more subtle and modern. Start by coloring a one inch strip at the bottom of your 140 lb watercolor paper, using a Tombow Dual Brush Pen in your event color. Next, use a paintbrush and some water to wet the ink and drag the water up the paper (by going back and forth horizontally) until you have a gradient effect. Once the paper is dry take a photo or scan it and add the event details on your computer and you’re ready to print your invitations!
Of the three invitations I showed you today which was your favorite? If you know someone who is getting married, send them a link to this post!
